    The Ultimate Travel Apps

    MobileIt has been a bit of a travel revolution. In the past tourists would stand at the Spanish Steps or on a street in New York struggling with travel books, fold-out map and crumpled photocopies.

    Now tourists use their Smartphone to get all the information they need with apps that can help tourists before and during the holiday.

    Here are our favourite apps for 2013.

    SeatGuru

    It might not be able to save you from a screaming child or a speed-talking CEO next to you, but SeatGuru can give you an overview of the aircraft and the best and worst places seats of the plane. The best seats are marked in green, standard seats in white, while less comfortable seats are marked with yellow and the worst are marked in red.
